Developing the drive for effective communication and the ability to connect literacy with areas of passion.
Recap: What's the Why?
If you've read our first post in this series, The Jobs That Don't Exist, you already know that more than half of the jobs our students will step
don't even exist today.
Our faculty work to prepare students not only with excellent academic skills, but also with the so-called "soft skills" that research shows are key to success in any job market. From clear communication to follow-through, research suggests that these soft skills may be even more important than academic success.
The final area we will look at in this series is how the Lower School writing curriculum both fosters a joy in communication and helps students to tap into the drive that is necessary to finish a project.
